Career counseling is offered to assist students in identifying the steps in their career development and exploration. Counselors at CAPS help students manage the concerns and stress associated with making career decisions, address personal issues that may contribute to decision-making difficulties, and utilize career assessment and resources more effectively.
Utilizing career resources effectively is an important step in career exploration. Our counselors can help you identify career resources that best help you make informed career decisions. If you would like to get a head start on the exploration process, check out the resource Focus 2 Online Career Self-Assessment and Planning Program.
Focus 2 is a self-paced, interactive career planning program designed to help you explore college majors and plan your career based on your interests, values, skills, personality, and professional goals. It is provided free of charge for currently enrolled Texas A&M students.
Career assessment and resource exploration are essential for career decision-making. The most commonly used measures at CAPS are Strong Interest Inventory, Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and Career Liftoff.
